Default Food ads on Facebook

McDonald's ads, candy bar ads, ads with really good looking (ie: evil) pies and cakes...
Does anyone else click the "X" and mark them as "offensive" or is it just me?

I do that too! I never realized how much that crap is pushed into our faces until I started losing weight. It's a shocker.

Me too! I read the first post and thought, "Wait, there's ads on Facebook?"

I also only get ads on 3FC when I check it on my phone.

I guess I'm in the minority, but they don't bother me. I know most fast food/sweets, etc look better than they taste.

Occasionally I use a non-Firefox browser and I'm always stunned to be reminded of just how many ads are on the internet! Hahaha... Adblock Plus is the best thing to ever happen to the web (if you're not someone that gets revenue from ads I guess)
